We understand the It’s this sensitivity to the needs of our customers that help us to create a customer-centric buying experience that we take immeasurable pride in offering.

Your Time. Your Terms

Simply put, our aim is to create a fully-transparent environment that empowers you to be informed and fully confident in your purchase. It’s been some time since prospective car-buyers have had to trek endlessly from dealership to dealership, wasting their valuable time kicking tires. As a reputable dealership, we have great respect for the demands on both your time and your resources. You deserve to shop on your time, and on your terms. Be it with the click of a mouse or the swipe of a finger, you can do exactly that here on

For every vehicle on our lot, we provide a thorough and comprehensive profile, which allows our customers to better acquaint themselves with their options. For our countless NEW Ford cars, trucks, crossovers and SUVs this means a full breakdown of manufacturer specs and unique vehicle features. In-depth exploration of each vehicle is possible courtesy of our image galleries (available on all vehicles) and pricing transparency is served up, ‘no questions asked’ by providing visibility of discounts and rebates.

This also includes an array of shopping tools. We might be getting ahead of ourselves, but the ability to compare vehicles against others gives the means to be as well-informed, as possible. By anticipating your needs, DePaula aims to give you everything you require in order to find the best fit for you.

Our vast inventory of PRE-OWNED models takes this a step further. Understanding that buying pre-owned means a reduction in depreciation, up-front and incremental costs, there’s no denying the inherent value. It means the ability to make a model and trim level that, if bought new, would be outside your budget, affordable. Factor in the chance of a better resale return on investment, based on the extended life-span of today’s vehicles, and the value speaks for itself. But technology empowers you to research vehicle history and secure greater assurance as to whether or not a particular vehicle is a wise investment. We encourage you to do so, as we stand by our inventory with pride.

And last, but certainly not least, consider our CERTIFIED PRE-OWNED inventory. As a Ford-authorized dealership, we are proud to partner with Ford in order to offer our selection of Ford Certified Pre-Owned vehicles. This ensures that we can offer you an even greater assurance of dependability and customer satisfaction, as well as a variety of additional benefits to be enjoyed. PLEASE ask us more about the benefits of Ford CPO programs (we’d be glad to answer any questions you may have).

Shifting Your Search into Drive

Once you’ve found the perfect vehicle (or at least, whittled down your choices) we invite you to use DePaula’s online shopping tools, designed to help you finalize your decision. Our payment calculator allows you to run some preliminary numbers to determine whether or not a vehicle fits the unique demands of your budget, while our ONLINE SHOPPER feature allows you to compare options and obtain an estimate on your Trade-in. You can also visit the Finance tab on to get pre-approved for any financing that you may need, as well as schedule a test drive online so that we're working around your schedule (not the other way around).

Believing that good customer service lies in more than just the car-BUYING experience, we aim to make your car-OWNING experience all the more easy, as well. And thanks to our dedicated team of parts and service professionals, we can do precisely that.

From the ability to schedule service online to the near constant offering of service specials, we want to help you to care of your vehicle. Our commitment extends to our staffing of nearly two-dozen Ford Master-Certified Trained Technicians and Service Advisors.

It also means the availability of complimentary loaner vehicles and courtesy transportation services. Because caring for your vehicle should never be an inconvenience.
